Colorado Association of Libraries Advocacy Task Force Initiative

Shared on behalf of CAL President-Elect, Linda Conway:

The Colorado Association of Libraries has a new Advocacy Task Force.  Our focus this year is on School Libraries.  Our school librarians and libraries need help. Many librarians have lost their jobs; many libraries are losing their funding. Clearly, the good work librarians do is not sufficient to save our libraries. We need to do something different.

We have designed a Toolkit for school librarians to use to advocate for their jobs and their libraries.  There are letters and links to share with your community advocates.  There is an easy to follow Advocacy Made Easy Document that you can use to guide you. This short document outlines a process to recruit non-librarians to speak to funding decision-makers on behalf of school libraries and librarians. You provide them with your success stories and they present them to the community.  Click Here to access the Toolkit.

If there are questions, comments, or concerns please e-mail: lindaconway@rocketmail.com
